Subject: A good film for little children
This is an excellent little film teaching children how to be cautious.It is also
just the right amount of time for their attention span.

Subject: Stranger Danger Lite
This definitely had to have been shot for the youngest schoolchildren - around first or maybe second grade. There's no way they could show anything like "The Strange Ones" or "Boys Beware" to them - to avoid scaring them, they probably just stuck with the "do this without an explanation" route. It reminded me a lot of the stuff that I learned in elementary school - we were taught what to do, but not why. And that is the cutest puppy that I have ever seen!

Subject: How friendly IS the cop??
This "Coulda been good" film fails to really bring on the sleaziness and explotiveness by being really dry and extremely padded. The zombie narration doesnt help either. 2 kids are taught in a classroom that looks pint sized for some odd reason, the 4 rules of avoiding strangers.. Don't accept gifts, rides, avoid dark alleyways and of course, "The policeman is always your friend". Then of course, the kids get into situations when those things happen. The first one shows promise, when the kids approach a guy with a dog who looks just like the perv from Boys Beware. The stranger tries to unload the dog on the kids, but the kids aren't buying it. They also ignore a lady's request to get in the car and avoid an alleyway. Then they approach a cop while the voiceover says "Remember, the policeman always is your friend" and cuts away before we get to see how friendly the policeman is :O. We cut away to the kids making a poster for each of the rules. Of course, their posters are far more sophisticated then their penmanship allows.
Realizing that all of these rules only take up 1/2 half of the time, the film is just PADDED with the kids playing in the playground, coloring, and helping mom with the chores.
Pretty dissapointing.

Wendy and Jamie learn safety rules at school, and it's a good thing they remember them because they get a chance to practice them all. Aimed at younger kids, so it is nowhere near as twisted as Sid Davis' "The Strange Ones" - no evil doers, just nice kids doing nice activities while nice musak plays and narrator reads script. Bland in that oh-so-60's school film sort of way.
